Schedule (Date / Event):
COVID 19 Update - After much review of the guidelines to reopen Motorsports Facilities from the Commonwealth of Virginia (https://www.governor.virginia.gov/…/Virginia-Forward-Phase-…) many restless nights and much prayer, I have decided that for the immediate future, Richmond Dragway will not reopen during this restrictive phase of reopening. Clearly, the restrictions in place are designed to facilitate major events (with TV and outside revenues) to continue to operate (i.e. NASCAR) and that is more than acceptable. There were a number of deciding factors in this decision including health & safety, financial considerations, and general principle.
